Technical Summary

   Large Proxy Mobile IPv6 deployments would benefit from a
   functionality, where a Mobile Access Gateway could dynamically
   discover a Local Mobility Anchor for a Mobile Node attaching to a
   Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain.  The purpose of the dynamic discovery
   functionality is to reduce the amount of static configuration in the
   Mobile Access Gateway.  This document describes several possible
   dynamic Local Mobility Anchor discovery solutions.
